Going the Distance

Posted on September 4, 2010


Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garrett (Jason Long) meet at a time when neither is ready for a commitment, and she’s leaving NY for San Francisco in six weeks. But that’s all it takes for them to consider a long-distance relationship. There are some hysterically funny parts in this, lots of sex jokes.
It’s not bad as a light, romantic comedy although it gets a little slow in the middle and you think you’re watching a tv show. Barrymore is cute and fun, and Long is geeky and funny. His two best buddies border on crude when they’re not discussing their feelings and sometimes even then. Christina Applegate is pretty good as the married sister. A lesson in how to compromise and work things out that are worth working out.

Remember the Friends episode when Ross goes to the tanning booth.  There’s a similar one here and you get to see a little more skin.
